Family Fun

We took the cousins to the St. Louis Science Center and everyone had a great time. Can’t you tell? Really, Millie enjoyed the visit – she just usually despises group photos and I made her get in it anyway. Like everything else, it will come out in therapy later.

Afterward, as I mentioned yesterday, we went to Ted Drewes for that famous St. Louis frozen custard. I got a concrete this time instead of a plain vanilla custard and it was way yummo, so I might be turning into a St. Louisan afterall. That, or it’s just been so long since I’ve enjoyed real ice cream that anything would have been way yummo yesterday.

We took another group photo and Millie was more accommodating this time. But then, who wouldn’t be with a face full of that yummy stuff?

Here’s baby Jane enjoying her fair share:

And me with my sister, Michelle. This picture was our third attempt in front of the Ted Drewes stand. You just can’t be too careful with these things.

Me and Michelle

We came home to discover that Craig had not only fired up the grill, but had also made hamburgers all by himself and had those and some brats all ready for us. That’s what I’m talking about. Then the kiddos had a blast in the kiddie pool, also throwing a ton of water balloons all over the place and at each other.

They left this morning and are probably home by now. We don’t do this nearly enough, but we enjoy it when we can. Thanks for coming, Michelle, Titus, Anna, and Jane! We loved being with you!

    You’re killing me, Jo. What you can’t see are the blue veins on the back side of my legs that my four children endowed me with. *grin*

    Although I must say, you do look fantastic, ladies, I’m with RT: my favorite part of the whole post is Grace in the first shot. It puts a grin on my face. Don’t we all feel that way sometimes?

    Yep – That face cracks me up every time I see the picture. It’s totally me from the past two weeks… Usually when there’s a group shot like that I have to get in it with her in order for her to not make that face every time… I couldn’t get in this one because I was taking it. Oh well.
    This is her “Mr. Grumpypants” face.
